I can’t describe a better scene: music after school with an accordion bellows honking out notes that may or may not thematically improve as time and tempo give way to unexplored neural networks of a certain high school student playing in a group setting.
Sock puppets yet to be liberated because the buttons and thread have yet to be adorned and fashioned into something much more. A story unfolds when we unhinge from the norms. Putting an effort forth for free wheeling creative thought is a muscle that needs developing, strength training for our core should include this as mandatory manna from heaven as the lost art of creativeness slides to a dark corner if we let it.
My offering? Create an environment for those seeking an outlet can and will be rewarded with a sense of satisfaction, a glimpse at the unknown and maybe a window into the bigger picture of self.
Seeking a place to be creative in is as much about the creative process as creating. The environment in which we find our self lends a certain patina to the experience. If a song can transform the mind to another place and space, imagine an imaginary world where the hopping off point is leading you in a direction that tends to blurb reality.
Make life anything but mundane and magnificent things may happen. Strive for this in the everyday.
Manifesting in the world is a magnificent experience that should be shared and spread around for as many that seek it. A thirst for knowledge means exploration. Explore where you can and where it leads you is the true nature of the adventure. Plan too carefully, plot too warily and the magic is muddled. Unknowing is trusting the outcome and embracing the bravery that is to me the essence of creativeness. If you can have a sidekick that helps the process, leads the path or simply sees an opportunity even better.
We might catch a glimpse of how that magic is conjured up
Grab a moment of what ever it is that you may be curious about. Please don’t over think, over process as overkill happens swiftly with a time centric signature. the essence of what we crave isn’t that far fetched if we can see the opportunities and take them as we make them.
